Many predicted it was only a matter of time before Hugh Freeze was out as head coach at Ole Miss. Few, if any, predicted it would have anything to do with personal misconduct and not NCAA issues or a decline in on-the-field production from his Rebel football team.

During Thursday night’s press conference in Oxford, held to discuss why Freeze stepped away from his head coaching duties at Ole Miss, the school’s administrators cited “a pattern of personal misconduct” for the reason behind Freeze’s departure. Ole Miss Athletic Director Ross Bjork and Chancellor Jeff Vitter definitively stated Freeze’s departure had nothing to do with the ongoing NCAA case against the football program.

While making that point clear, the Ole Miss administrators declined to get into further detail regarding what Freeze had done in order to walk away from the millions of dollars remaining on his contract without receiving any form of a buyout.

According to SB Nation’s Steven Godfrey, Freeze made “multiple phone calls to escort services” during his time at the school.

That certainly would explain it.

Godfrey made that statement Friday morning as a guest on ESPN Nashville radio station 102.5 The Game. The SB Nation writer was then asked if the calls to the escort services were for Freeze’s personal use.

“Oh, it’s 110 percent for his personal use. I’ve confirmed, this has nothing to do with any type of situation with recruiting at Ole Miss. This was specific to his own personal use,” Godfrey answered. “He would reach out to these services when he was out of town — away from Oxford.”

The SB Nation writer was also asked to speculate on the future for Hugh Freeze.

“There is none in college football,” Godfrey stated.
